    I have worked as a Po1nt coordinator since early 2020. Previously, I worked as a project planner for the Po1nt on Chat project for two years, meaning that I was intimately familiar with Po1nt even before starting my job as coordinator. In addition to this, I have worked on projects in youth services in Lapinlahti, as a summer job activities planner for the City of Iisalmi youth services, as a special needs assistant, a kindergarten teacher and everything in between, from tending bar to working on peat bogs. I am easily excited and I never hesitate to try new things, I jump at the chance to experiment.

    I am 36-year-old long-time gamer and game educator. I work as a youth worker for the City of Espoo and I mainly work with organising and planning digital gaming. I have put special emphasis on organising targeted work through the game group. Using digital games as a tool is part of my work and I am involved in developing digital youth work for Espoo in the digital group within the youth services. I am also one of the founding members of the Pelikaverit ry association, which offers safe, trained volunteers as gaming buddies for young people.
